Representatives of Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan – Newcastle Deal Is Concluded


This is what the Mail’s Adam Crafton has reported overnight that the deal to buy Newcastle has concluded according to the reps of Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan.

We will wait and see, however, since they tried to buy Liverpool for a massive £2B last August, and apparently didn’t come up with the funds.

Crafton also reported on that deal.

But £350M is a lot less than £2B – £1.65B less – we assume these reports are accurate.

We hope the reports are accurate – here are the tweets sent out by Adam Crafton.

    A lot of gaps need filling in yet on this #nufctakeover situation.

    For me, priority remains Rafa’s contract. 35 days to get it sorted – whether owner is Ashley or AN Other. Sign. Him. Up.

    Rondon , Rafa and Fornals are the priority
    Diame deserves a one year extension as a parting gift

    Le Ryder 41 mins – #nufc have confirmed some talks with Shaikh Khaled. But say there is still “some way” to go on a deal. More to follow.

    So maybe hold the celebrations!

    Still the same situation as before. I’d not put it past Ashley to I’m drag it out then offend then by moving the goal posts and the deal collapses. Then he’ll spout he tried his best and oh darn there is no time to sign anyone.

    Agreed, it’s likely that if the interest is real and agreement is close, Ashley will start pi$$ing about to try to squeeze as much as he can out of a buyer. That being so, he could well be with us next season.

    Were there any doubt as to whether a new owner would meet
    the FAs “fit and proper owner” requirements, it would make
    sense to submit those papers to the FA early.

    Otherwise, they could waste a lot of time agreeing a deal
    only for the FA to prevent it.

    I sense some people are actually saddened by this news
    Now that bogeyman ashley is gone, they will no longer have a pantomime villain to hate
    No one to take their frustrations out on anymore. unlucky
    I bet they are secretly praying this news isnt true. lol

    So conflicting reports coming out now. Maybe the sun went for the sensational headline. Whereas in reality talks have just begun.

    If the FA and EPL have been informed of a change in ownership I would feel more positive about the takeover

    @ctommo, would love to join you, but I’ll be in Pebbles at Bin Majid in RAK.

    If you’re up this way over the holidays give me a shout, more than happy to claim your beers LOL.

    Same goes for JDdubai of course.

    Oh down that way quite a few Toon fans normally hang out at the end of the bar (near the door, not the pool tables) at Goodfellas, Ramee Rose Tecom.

    What’s worrying is if it is for sale at £350M it should be just a formality if there is to be a sale, it’s the add ons and hidden contracts that could scupper things, maybe he wants £350M plus additional X millions for each separate franchise ie shirts, advertising, catering etc

    Jail, know exactly what you mean. Also know that these guys still worry about their money, but if that is the case, he is the only one who has been mentioned that could probably cope with that situation

    After all the excitement following the Sun’s ‘exclusive’ unfortunately things are starting to unravel a bit – from a done deal with contracts signed etc to a long way to go – the amount of misinformation is increasing by the minute.

    I will believe it when an official announcement is made – don’t hold your breath though!

    But let’s not give up entirely, there is a short window for a takeover to happen and there is stuff going on away from public glare by people who aren’t interested in publicity. As with Benitez contract, let them get on with it #NUFC
